One property, two incomes- dual key properties.

There are many advantages of a dual-key property, two incomes from one property the most obvious.

Dual-key properties have long been favoured by smarter property investors, chasing higher returns than stand alone properties.


Dual-key properties are cheaper to build than duplexes, which are more costly per square metre to build and have higher council costs and strata titling.

Dual-key properties are usually a house on one side, with a unit on the other.

The configuration could be something like 3 or 4 bedrooms on one side and 1 or 2 bedrooms on the other side.

The dwellings are separated by a fire wall but cannot be strata titled.

This means no body corporate fees and only one set of rates, as councils view the construction to be that of a normal house.



The advantages to investors:

• A higher yield for you now

• A higher yield that will appeal to another savvy investor when you want to exit.

• Investors can live in one side and rent out the other to help pay for the mortgage

• RealRenta will create separate rental ledgers for each side of the property, as they are listed as separate addresses.
